Green Apple Active is a brand committed to sustainability, comfort, and versatility in our active wear. Being active is more than a workout, it’s a lifestyle. Pursuing health in every facet of your life is what we are about. We believe in creating a clothing line that natural and a healthier alternative to the chemical laden fibers of typical clothing material. As a result, we have designed a full clothing line from a sustainable and quality source, bamboo. Green Apple Active is passionate about incorporating healthy practices in our clothing production, and providing quality products you love.

Why Bamboo?

Green Apple Active is all about going green, and we’ve established products that ensure just that. Using organic bamboo and organic cotton, each piece will be exponentially softer, moisture wicking, flexible and supportive. Bamboo chutes also grow exponentially faster than trees, creating a substantial amount of resources to be used. The benefits of bamboo are vast and provide a reliable resource for clothing. It has often been compared to silk or cashmere due to its incredibly soft texture, though it’s exponentially less expensive.

How it Grows

When we say bamboo is sustainable, we should say it’s potentially the most sustainable resource available. The chutes can grow over a yard in as little as one day. With little water and sunlight needed to grow, bamboo also has deep, intertwining roots. When it is harvested, bamboo never has to be replanted. The roots are so deeply established that it continually starts new chutes, creating a consistent growth for the plant and allowing it to be used for resourcing often.

Environment Benefit

There are countless reasons to choose bamboo for our fabric. One of the biggest is being the environmental benefits it provides. The bamboo plant provides energy efficiency through minimal watering and sunlight, cleans the air by returning 30% more oxygen to the atmosphere than trees, and is 100% biodegradable. Furthermore, the benefits of bamboo being used for clothing material extend further.

Sun Protecting

The material is naturally UV resistant. Simultaneously it provides moisture wicking properties, keeping you from overheating, even while you are in the sun. It posses the ability to absorb over four times the amount of moisture as cotton, and allows for better evaporation.

Allergy Friendly

Organic bamboo has natural smooth fibers that don’t cause irritation to skin. If you are, or you know of someone who struggles with finding fabrics that won’t irritate their skin and make it red, bamboo is the answer. Anyone with dermatitis or other textile allergies will likely find bamboo fabric to be a great solution.
